Lumix Video Test

The Panasonic Lumix is limited to 30 minutes of continuous video which is not an issue for most.

Both of my still cameras have video capability, and they tend to get distracted by motion. In the video, notice how the camera goes out of focus at the 2:32 mark. The lens, in auto-mode, wants to focus on the nearest object. So if there is movement — like someone walking through the camera’s field of view (FOV) — there will be motion blur.

The internal mic does muffle the wind, but the camera body has a mount for an external mic. Be advised that pop-up flash will not work if external mic is attached.

If you like taking photos and video then a bridge camera, or DSLR provides that option without packing extra gear.
